Went out last weekend.
Had fun with the locals at least. Will have to revert to the stinky stuff me thinks to fill the bin.

That's awesome footage!! What a privilege... those Maui Dolphins are critically endangered. Only about 100 left of them.

It would be great for you to let The Taranaki DOC people know what you got to see.

Hopefully the good karma for doing that will return you all the snaps and carrots you ever want.

OK. This wasn't west coast Taranaki. It was west coast Greymouth area.
I checked them out online on the day and Maui are a sub species of Hectors which are endangered, but common to South Island, if that can be said.
If this was Taranaki they would have been reported.

very good, disappointing there not NI mauis though . When I was a teenager in the 70s we used to fish of papanui point on the raglan coast and at times there would be a pod of say a dozen swimming and jumping around for the bulk of the day ,not any more though the last one ive seen was about 5 yrs ago by its self, guess they will be extinct in my life time :@ . The inshore netting ban to try to protect them has made the inshore fishing a lot better from what ive seen so it could be a bummer for the rec fishing when there gone because the comms will want to get back inshore with there nets :n:
